Body pulled from Lake Cumberland is missing man

A body has been pulled from Lake Cumberland.

The body was in a truck that was submerged.

The truck was near the Slate Branch Rd. boat dock, which is near Somerset in Pulaski County.

On Friday, investigators said the body is that of 63 year old Sampie Sparkman.

He went missing back in May 2008 and was last seen at a gas station/food mart in London.

An autopsy will be performed on Sparkman's body, but right now police do not suspect foul play was involved.
